Santorum endorses Romney

Rick Santorum has endorsed Mitt Romney. The endorsement, which was expected, came in an email from the former Senator to his supporters.

Santorum laid out, with his customary clarity, the reasons why his supporters and other conservatives, including social conservatives, should strongly back Romney over President Obama:

The primary campaign certainly made it clear that Governor Romney and I have some differences. But there are many significant areas in which we agree: the need for lower taxes, smaller government, and a reduction in out-of-control spending. We certainly agree that abortion is wrong and marriage should be between one man and one woman. I am also comfortable with Governor Romney on foreign policy matters, and we share the belief that we can never allow Iran to possess nuclear weapons. And while I had concerns about Governor Romney making a case as a candidate about fighting against Obamacare, I have no doubt if elected he will work with a Republican Congress to repeal it and replace it with a bottom up, patient, not government, driven system.

Above all else, we both agree that President Obama must be defeated. The task will not be easy. It will require all hands on deck if our nominee is to be victorious. Governor Romney will be that nominee and he has my endorsement and support to win this the most critical election of our lifetime.

This is a compelling case, and I expect that Romney will have the solid backing of Santorum supporters and those who backed other socially conservative candidates during the caucus/primary season.
